Looks okay, though I'd have the bridge plate extend further towards the butt end of the guitar. For a very small bodied guitar, you likely don't need to double the side and bottom braces.

I use a one-piece end block that is more or less "L" shaped, with the leg of the L glued to the underside of the top and abutting the upper transverse brace (sound hole brace). It also houses the truss rod that extends through a hole in that brace. In some cases, I extend the two braces on the sides of the sound hole through cutouts in the upper transverse brace. They are angled to be about parallel with the sides of the fingerboard. They extend to the linings of the upper bout. Between the extended braces and "L" shaped end block, a popsicle brace isn't possible.
